Look me in the eye and tell me Gigi Hadid isn’t wearing blackface AGAIN for Vogue Italia

If ya’ll wanna be cancelled so bad, just say so

In today's episode of white people culturally appropriating, Gigi Hadid in what looks like blackface is the subject gracing this month's Vogue Italia cover. Last night, Gigi Hadid posted a preview of its May issue and quite frankly, the "deep tan" they photoshopped on her came straight out of a minstrel show.

Some of the comments under the photo showed a helluva lot of confusion and a whole lot of anger.

This isn't the first time Gigi and the Vogue franchise has been under fire for culturally appropriating though. Apparently, the photographer involved in Gigi's photoshoot is the very same who dressed model Lara Stone in Vogue France.

This was Blackface Gigi circa 2015

So compare for yourself how she looked on both her Vogue Italia covers, and how she looks IRL:

This isn't the only time Gigi has been set on fire for culturally appropriating. We've rounded up a list of times in which she's done something racially ignorant, so what's really good Gij?

And right on cue, Twitter went off

You can call it overly tanning all you want, but the fact remains that this is altering of skin tone is simply to sell a book full of ads. All I can say is certain people (Gigi) haven't learned a whole lot on why it’s completely fucked.

UPDATE: Gigi has taken down the Vogue cover from her instagram and uploaded and apology to her Instagram story:

"Please understand that my control of a shoot 1. is non existent in terms of creative direction 2. ends completely when I leave set, and anything done to a photo in post is out of my control fully," she wrote. "BUT, although I understand waht Vogue Italia's intentions were, it was not executed correctly, and the concerns that have been brought up are valid."
